    HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "...I took these photos in the Summer of 1971 (maybe 1972), and the event took place at NAS Glenview, Illinois. In the photos one of our VP-60 Neptunes (LS-04, BUNO: 148359) sits facing west on the east-west runway, with a VP-30 Orion (LL-17, BUNO: 152722) directly behind it. Looking south into the background you see the NAS golf course. What you're looking at is a "static start" of one of the Orion's engines by the Neptune. VP-30 was visiting that day, and getting ready to depart they discovered they had no starter in one of their engines. Neptune to the rescue! It's a great photo of these two generations of ASW aircraft "side-by-side."..." Contributed by LaGRO, AW2 Phil pal7445@msn.com [07APR2009]
